Remington Opens Sporting Clays Course, Hosts Inaugural Spring League
– Remington Ammunition is excited to announce the opening of the Remington Gun Club to the public. Complete with a brand-new 13 station sporting clays course, the inaugural spring sporting clays league is now underway.
Only steps away from Remington’s historic ammunition factory in Lonoke, Arkansas, Big Green has recently expanded the Gun Club with a new 13-station sporting clays course and has begun construction on an additional 12-station north course as well.
Established in 1978, but closed by previous Remington company ownership, Big Green’s new owners have re-opened the gates of the club to again welcome both novice and competitive shooters from across the country. A longtime destination for trap and skeet shooters, the club has added the state’s only sporting clays course open to the public. The new addition was made possible with the support of the Arkansas Game and Fish Foundation and the MidwayUSA Foundation.
In addition to the re-opening of the Gun Club, Remington is hosting their first spring Sporting Clays League. With two divisions- 17 and younger and 18 and older- the league opened on April 6th and will continue through May 22nd. This six week, 300 target league has weekly ammo winners, and added cash prizes.
“Everyone at Remington is really excited to see some action on this course and put some Remington lead down range,” said Joel Hodgdon, Remington’s Director of Marketing. “This is a remarkable facility. We have a ton of exciting events and tournaments planned for Remington fans and pros to get out here and break some clays.”
Clay target enthusiasts can also improve their shooting skills from expert instructors at the Gun Club, as well as purchase the world’s best shotshells such as Gun Club, Premier STS and Premier Nitro in the Pro Shop.
The Remington Gun Club is also set up to accommodate private events whether you’re looking to host a fundraiser, corporate meeting, or weekend away.
